  Development of a personalised immunotherapy combined with viro-therapy for treatment of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
  Dr Y Wang, Prof F Farzaneh
Application Deadline: 18 March 2019
This 4-year PhD studentship is offered by the Cancer Research UK City of London Centre. Despite recent advances in therapy for primary breast cancer, relapse remains a significant concern, particularly for the triple-negative subset.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round
Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round
In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Could blood digestion be the poultry red mite’s Achille’s heel – a novel ‘omic and gene knockdown approach to the control of Dermanyssus gallinae
  Dr S Burgess, Dr A Nisbet, Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Infestation of laying hen houses with poultry red mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) causes major animal welfare and economic problems for the egg-producing industry worldwide, costing in excess of €231 million per year in the European Union alone in control and production losses.
  Exploiting CRISPR/Cas9 for the Control of Parasitic Nematode NTDs
  Dr L Atkinson, Dr A Mousley, Prof A Maule
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Louise Atkinson, Dr Angela Mousley, and Professor Aaron Maule of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round
Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
